Red Grape stem cell
Protection of skin stem cells is essential as their main functions are to replenish and maintain the balance of skin cells as well as to regenerate damaged tissues. Despite the use of sun filters, toxins and reactive oxygen species (ROS) are still generated by UV in the skin.
Originating from the Burgundy region in France, the Gamay Teinturier Fréaux grape is characterized by its red flesh and juice due to the extremely high anthocyanin and tannins content.
Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants and free radical scavengers. They act as a “sunscreen” by absorbing UV radiation. Their effectiveness is further enhanced by interaction with other phytochemical substances present in the grape.
These grape stem cells contain special epigenetic factors and metabolites, which are able to protect human skin stem cells against UV radiation and increase its UV tolerance. This will protect the skin from signs of photo-aging and thus maintain vital and healthy-look.
